Donating Plus Dollars

submitted 4 months ago by in General

I know that Plus Dollars expire at the end of the year. Is there a way StudCo could work with Dining Services to create an initiative where students could donate their unused Plus Dollars to the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank? I know some students buy canned food with their leftover Plus Dollars and donate […]

Lost & Found on Grounds

submitted 4 months ago by in Buildings & Grounds

We really need a lost and found in every academic building! Even if it’s just a cardboard box or something; a clearly labelled, designated lost and found in each building is a must. Things that are left in classrooms disappear after one day, and you have to chase down Facilities Management personnel in the building […]

Dog Do-Doo

submitted 5 months ago by in Buildings & Grounds

It has come to my attention, at the dismay of my feet, that there is a large amount of unpicked up dog poop around grounds. Particularly around the lawn or other public grass areas. It may be helpful if we had a friendly reminder sign to clean up after your pets or to have a […]

Drones on the Lawn

submitted 5 months ago by in Buildings & Grounds

A lot of people fly drones over the Lawn, which is incredibly loud and disturbing to many people who want to enjoy time outdoors. There should be restrictions on who can fly drones over the Lawn and when they can.

Email Reminder for Collab

submitted 5 months ago by in Technology

The emails telling students an assignment has been submitted in Collab are helpful, but it would be a great feature to have a reminder an hour or the same day an assignment or quiz was due on collab. I have forgotten more quizzes than I would care to admit on Collab because I simply forgot […]

Standing Desks

submitted 5 months ago by in Safety & Wellness

We should have at least a few standing desks around in the libraries or Rotunda. Or maybe some boxes/blocks that can be placed on existing desks to make them standing height. Students spend hours at a time sitting at their desk looking down at their computer screens and it’s very unhealthy. Standing desks or a […]

Gooch Dorm Printing Service

submitted 7 months ago by in Technology

The printer in the lounge of Gooch dorm has been there for more than a month, but the printing service is still not available. I think the printer is there for the residents to use, so when is the printing service available?

Dorm Drinking Fountain

submitted 8 months ago by in Buildings & Grounds

The First Year dorms only have drinking fountains on the first floor of each dorm. A lot of times I want to fill up a water bottle or britta and I don’t want to use the sink water or make the trek to the bathroom in general. Anyways, I propose that each floor of the […]

CPD Alert

submitted 9 months ago by in Safety & Wellness

I am concerned about CDP and UVA PD withholding information. I heard (what I thought were) gunshots today (11/13) on Grady and was not notified of anything. I saw police activity immediately after the shots, and found out a few hours later that there was shooting. It seems there was also a shooting on Wertland […]

Movie Screening

submitted 4 months ago by in Diversity Engagement

I think it would be really great for StudCo to have a movie dialogue series in Newcomb Theater (the way UPC has their movies of the month) that has people discussing marginalized intersectional identities. Suggestions for these movies: Paris is Burning, Moonlight, Tongues Untied, 12 Years a Slave, and For Colored Girls.

Chairs in quiet study areas

submitted 4 months ago by in Buildings & Grounds

They recently made a new section of Brown in Clark a quiet area, yet the chairs are the most obnoxious squeaking pieces of furniture ever manufactured. It didn’t matter as much before when there was noise to cover it up, but now it is more distracting than if people were holding conversations. Can we get […]
